Recombinant human 4-1BB Ligand Protein with N-mouse Fc and C-6×His tag
|The purity of the protein is greater than 95% as determined by SDS-PAGE and Coomassie blue staining.
|Lyophilized from sterile PBS, pH 7.4. Normally 5 % - 8 % trehalose is added as protectants before lyophilization.
|Storage condition :
|Store at -80°C for 12 months (Avoid repeated freezing and thawing)
|Alternative Name :
The protein has a predicted molecular mass of 49.8 kDa after removal of the signal peptide.The apparent molecular mass of mFc-4-1BB Ligand-His is approximately 53-70 kDa due to glycosylation.
The protein encoded by this gene is a cytokine that belongs to the tumor necrosis factor (TNF) ligand family. This transmembrane cytokine is a bidirectional signal transducer that acts as a ligand for TNFRSF9/4-1BB, which is a costimulatory receptor molecule in T lymphocytes. This cytokine and its receptor are involved in the antigen presentation process and in the generation of cytotoxic T cells. The receptor TNFRSF9/4-1BB is absent from resting T lymphocytes but rapidly expressed upon antigenic stimulation. The ligand encoded by this gene, TNFSF9/4-1BBL, has been shown to reactivate anergic T lymphocytes in addition to promoting T lymphocyte proliferation. This cytokine has also been shown to be required for the optimal CD8 responses in CD8 T cells. This cytokine is expressed in carcinoma cell lines, and is thought to be involved in T cell-tumor cell interaction.
